Lovely Little Yumi

Chronic Kidney Disorder

Hello fellow Catster members, I know it has been a long time since I have been active in this community so I wonder just how many of my Caster friends are still here. Saturday my husband & I took our little Yumi to an Emergency vet & she has been receiving care there ever since. Within a two days time I could start to tell that something was unusual and different with her and things just never got better ever since. She was very sluggish and sleepy eyed with a very frail and fragile look to her. She walked very staggered and clumsy. She would sit by the bed and look up as if to say I want up there but I can't do this, she just stayed floor level and hid under the bed. Many of these symptoms I did not visibly see until vet day. Since it was a Saturday, all of the vets that my husband & I tried to call were closed so finally we found an emergency vet clinic. I have her paperwork on hand but I cannot read it for the life of me, all I know is that the "values" were "unreadable" & off of the scale. The doctor said she was a little better yesterday but her "values" were still very high. Her weight was 4.6 when it is usually 6.5-7.0lbs. I am very sad & full of guilt. As long as there is a little hope out there though, I will take it.

We were happy to hear from you though sorry to learn you have not been feeling well. Unfortunately, we can hide our kidney problems until it is late.

We are hoping you're better and that you are back home.
